Rachel Francine is a frequent speaker on building preferable futures, innovation best practices, women in technology, and music as medicine for such diverse organizations as the United Nations, the Professional Golfers Association, the Association of Professional Futurists and the American Society on Aging. Rachel began working in interactive technologies in 1996 as a member of the CitySearch.com New Markets team and spent a decade transforming brick and mortar businesses into scalable technologies. Disappointed with the trajectory and goals of the commercial technology sector, in 2009 Rachel earned a master’s degree in Futures Studies from the University of Houston with a focus on Transformational Economics in order to build organizations that produce quadruple bottom-line results. Upon graduation, Rachel co-founded Musical Health Technologies and in 2020 was asked to join the board of Teach the Future.
Rachel is the CEO of Musical Health Technologies whose music as medicine solution, SingFit is used at more than 500 long term care facilities in the United States. In this role, she has had to navigate both the worlds of medicine and music to successfully scale a music as medicine solution.
